Safety
To avoid danger of suffocation, dispose of the plastic packaging bag and keep
away from children and pets.
Do not use dry ice, use of dry ice in an enclosed area can cause serious injury
or death.
Do not operate your unit if any of the power supply cords are damaged.
Do not sit or stand on the unit.
Be sure to secure the unit while traveling in any moving vehicle.
Keep the outflow vent clear of any obstructions.
Do not add salt to any part of the unit.
Always pull the unit by the handle, do not push.
Empty excess water before lifting up on the handle water could pour out.
Do not immerse the unit in water.
Do not let the unit run dry, as this could damage pump.
Lifting too high on the handle could result in tipping and loss of contents.
Helpful Hints
When using the IcyBreeze as an air conditioner, for best results the use of blocked
ice is recommended in your IcyBreeze unit. The use of ice from self-serve machines may not perform as well as blocked ice in your unit. We have also found that
freezing gallon jugs with water and placing them inside the unit along with cubed
ice lengthens cooling time. Be sure to fill water to the “Minimum Water Fill” line.

INSTALLATION AND SETUP
Unpacking Your IcyBreeze
Take your IcyBreeze out of its protective plastic bag and safely dispose of the plastic bag. Plastic bags can be hazardous to children and pets. Unwrap and prepare
all chargers and accessories purchased with your IcyBreeze. Ensure that all parts
and pieces are removed from the IcyBreeze packaging (box and bag) before discarding.
Charge Your Battery
Locate the 12-Volt Battery Charger that is included with your IcyBreeze. Plug the
charger into the control panel on the top of the IcyBreeze lid to begin charging the
battery pack. Make sure that the charger’s solid red light is on. This light indicates
that your battery pack is charging and will be ready in approximately six to eight
hours. Charging times may vary. A solid green light indicates a full charge. If the
light is flashing green, check make sure unit is off, check connections. If light is
flashing red, allow more time to charge. (See page 4)
Other Power Options
If you purchased the optional 12V automotive continuous power adapter or 110V
continuous wall adapter, you can use your IcyBreeze immediately without charging
the battery pack completely. Please note: The 12-volt automotive and 110-volt
adapters will not charge the battery pack. Follow the rest of the directions for filling
the cooler before turning on the unit.
Filling Your Cooler
Before filling your IcyBreeze cooler, make sure the drain plug is properly fitted to
the drain tube. Next, fill the unit with approximately two quarts of cold tap water or
until water level reaches the “Minimum Water Level” line clearly marked inside the
unit. Adding more than the recommended amount of water or adding hot water
will reduce cooling performance. This will ensure optimum operation.
Fill the IcyBreeze with the desired amount of ice. DO NOT USE DRY ICE. THIS CAN
CAUSE SERIOUS HEALTH RISKS AND EVEN DEATH. Be sure not to overfill the
cooler with ice. Be sure that the lid closes without impacting ice. Unit holds 30lbs
of ice.
Using Your Portable Air Conditioner
By this step, your IcyBreeze should have power, water and ice. You’ll need to turn
the switch to one of the three fan positions to start your IcyBreeze. It takes the
pump about 20 seconds to run water through the cooling system. Once the ice
begins cooling the water, you should begin to feel cool air. The air of the IcyBreeze
comes out through the vent or you may pull the flexible vent tube to direct the
airflow.

STORAGE AND CLEANING
Cleaning Your IcyBreeze
The IcyBreeze functions best when kept clean. After use, pull the drain plug and
be sure to drain any remaining water from the cooler area of the unit. The outside and inside surfaces of the IcyBreeze can be cleaned with most mild cleaning
solutions and rinsed thoroughly afterwards. Store the unit in a cool, dry area at
temperatures above 35 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid water freezing in the unit.
We recommend periodically running the system using a white vinegar and water
solution in areas of the country with hard water. These mineral deposits can build
up in the pump, tubing and radiator reducing heat exchange efficiency and possibly plugging the system.
